Default INTENSE PCM question

I was curious what some of the INTENSE standard Pcm benefits are
Differential scoring protection?
SC torque management?
What is abuse mode ( Im pretty sure what it is )
What kind of air/fuel adjustments ?

Really I think you should email Todd about that. I have a DHP, IPCM, and stock file. But the only real way to decide is to post them up and make your own descision. And I don't think Intense or DHP would like part of their PCM file posted.

Abuse mode is settings in the PCM that GM uses to hold back power under specific parameters such as tire spinning. By removing these limitations we allow you to unleash the full power of the car. Torque management which are limiters imposed when you exceed certain torque parameters in each gear affect the power as well.

Supercharger torque management reduces boost by 50% if certain parameters are exceeded and we reduce or remove that as well depending on the level of PCM.

Basically GM puts limitations in the programming that help cars last 100'* of thousands of miles. These limitations are reduced in our standard PCM and removed entirely by the time you have a stage 3 or custom PCM from us.

Fuel and timing tweaks are done as well to provide horsepower and safety (add fuel to help combat leaness and knock).
